ALOHA SAINTS, FAMILY & FRIENDS,  Beloved of God and me,   John 3:16

JUDGMENT,    “WORTH CONSIDERING”   10/2/20   From Ken<><

Today’s Scripture     (Across my desk this Friday from a Church in Texas.)
As they danced, they sang: “Saul has slain his thousands, and David his tens of thousands.”
(1 Samuel 18:7, NIV)
Join the Dance
King Saul had been happy running his race until David started getting more praise than him. From that moment on, Saul never looked at David the same way and ended up losing his throne over it. What was his problem? He could not handle somebody getting ahead of him. Saul got distracted and spent months and months trying to kill David all because he wasn’t comfortable with who he was.  Maybe like Saul, you’re at the one thousand level but you have a friend who’s at the ten thousand level. The real test to see if God can promote you is: Can you celebrate people who pass you by and stay focused on your race? Can you celebrate what you’ve accomplished? Our attitude should be: “God may have made me to be a one thousand-level person, but I’m going to be the best one thousand-level person you’ve ever seen. I’m going to become all God has created me to be.”
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You for the amazing people You have brought into my life, and thank You that You’ve made me amazing as well. Thank You that I am not competing against others but simply running my own race. I celebrate who You have made me to be. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Ken’s Thoughts:
Actually we are told in scripture to judge nothing before the time.  That all judgment really is in the hands of the Lord  Jesus Christ.  The reason is that we are locked in a dimension of time and we have only a limited understanding and perspective.  I made a tract into a paper airplane and gave it to a lovely little girl in Denny’s the other day.   Prayed over it, what happened to is, only God knows.  Could quickly be trashed… or could turn the family towards the LORD.  But much in my life now is done with simple obedience.   As I left my study the Holy Spirit reminded me to take some tracts along.  As I ate breakfast, a man and 9 yr. old girl sat down for a special time together.  The Holy Spirit told me to make a paper airplane of the tract which can really fly pretty good.  And as I left I ask the father if the daughter could have the airplane and he was delighted to have a gift for the daughter.  And her eyes lit up with the expectancy of playing with the little toy.   And I know in the process the tract will start to come apart and that the picture of a lighthouse and the words “Let There Be Light” will flash out and perhaps the tract, all Bible on light, will be considered.  What a nice moment in time.  But what will happen out of it, I will not find out until standing before the LORD and giving an account of my life on earth.  I am having my 4th printing of 1,000 tracts printed now.  Cost about .10 cents each to have printed.  Want some, let me know.

So it really does not matter where I am in the flow of God’s Kingdom.  I am only responsible to use what God has entrusted to my care for HIS GLORY as best as I know how.  That to be 100% committed to living my life in Christ Jesus by the Power of the Holy Spirit.  And that I am not in competition with anyone.  I am unique, one of a kind.  There will never be anyone else like me.  God made me and broke the mold.  I don’t have to measure up to anyone else.  I just need to learn to run at 100% efficiency for Jesus as my LORD.  And to not be weighted down by the stuff or cares of this world unless they are part of what God wants me to carry.   He is looking for kids to love HIM with all their heart and not with one eye on the T.V. or in getting that shiney new car or…..

Life consists not in the abundance of things we posses but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.   As I see it now at 88, I need to set my personal ideals in neutral if I really want the Holy Spirit to be my guide in life.  It is either all God or it is all me.  I want it to be all God…  Jesus made this very clear in His teachings in the Gospels.

Yours in HIS great love and wonderful Grace and Mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
